“O Bless the Lord, my soul!”

A hymn written by Isaac Watts


O Bless the Lord, my Soul!
     Let all within me join,
And aid my tongue to bless His name
     Whose Favours are divine


O bless the Lord, my soul!
     Nor let His mercies lie
Forgotten in unthankfulness.
     And without praises die.


'Tis He forgives thy sins;
     'Tis He relives thy pain;
'Tis He that heals thy sicknesses,
     And makes thee young again.


He crowns thy life with love,
     When ransomed from the grave;
He that redeemed my soul from hell,
     hath sov'reign power to save.


He fills the poor with good;
     He gives the suff'rers rest:
The Lord hath judments for the proud,
     And justice for th' opressed.


His wondrous works and ways
     He made by Moses known;
But sent the world His truth and grace
     By His beloved Son.
